How can you check the purity of gold?
Gold jewelry has evolved from a fashion statement to a crucial investment. You should ensure that you are 100% aware of the quality of gold before you purchase it.
Many investors might be looking to purchase gold in the face of falling prices. You can classify the purity of gold in carats, which can be divided into 24, 22, 18, 14, or 10 Carats. Jewelry is mostly made of 22 Carats of gold, as 24 Carats of gold are very soft and break easily. It is important to note that 22 Carat pure gold will have 999 written, while 24 Carat gold will be written at 995.
You will find 916 writing on 22 Carat Gold, while 750 will be written on 18 Carat Gold. You can determine the purity of jewelry by looking for the Hallmark sign. Jewelers must write it on every piece of jewelry.
